Tuesday “Bag Lunch” Book Study
Age Range: Adult
Days/Times: September 12, 2023 – May 2024

The Tuesday Bag Lunch Book Study will begin discussing “Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?” by Brian McLaren when we gather on April 16 at 11:45.
We’ll talk about how to be a committed Christian while approaching other faiths with “benevolence and solidarity rather than rivalry and hostility.” New participants encouraged! Purchase book from your preferred book seller.
Please join us as we dive deeper into books that focus on personal transformation, deepening our spirituality and expanding our ideas about God’s presence in the world. Bring your own lunch!

The book of Acts tells the story of the early Christian church with the flair of an adventure movie: earthquakes, shipwrecks, avenging angels, harrowing escapes, riots, murder plots,
political intrigue, courtroom drama, and more. In Acts, God’s Spirit delivers something fresh, significant, and life-changing to the early Church, just as God’s Spirit will deliver the same gifts to us. Come be a part of the Acts adventure beginning Tuesday, January 9 at 9:15 am. If you have any questions or want more information, please contact Pastor Eric at: eaune001@gmail.com.
Thursday Pastor’s Book Study
Age Range: Adult
Days/Times: Thursdays, 1:00-2:30pm, Fireside Room
For our next Pastor’s Book Study we will be reading Sandy Tolan’s The Lemon Tree, which tells a story that brings the Israel-Palestine conflict down to its most human level. The story is about a Palestinian man who goes in search of his family’s former house and lemon tree, and the friendship he forms with the Israeli college student he meets when he finds it.
Because this story touches on critical current events, we are offering it not only at the usual Thursday afternoon time (1pm), but also between Sunday services from 10-10:30am. The study will begin this Sunday / Thursday, and run through February 15th, taking a week off for January 21/25. No need to read ahead for the first week. Books available for purchase in the church office.

Art Enthusiasts
Currently Paused
Age Range: All ages
Days/Times: Second Saturday of the month @ 9:30-12pm
If you are an artist (or want to be) age 10 to 99 you are invited! One of our artists will demonstrate a technique, method or tip they have learned so we can learn from each other. Then you will have time to work on whatever you want, get critiques from the other artists on how to improve and just explore. We will meet the first Saturday of the month in the Sonshine room. Remember to bring something to work on (you don’t need more than a piece of paper and a pencil!)

**We want to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate. If you worry your home does not accommodate a large gathering, please reach out to the church office to host your groups’ meal in the Community Room.
